03 Cooper brake pipes replacement cost?

As the title says.
Definitely 'pipes' not 'hoses'

What should I expect for my wifes Cooper? I will do them all.
MOT advisory, not a fail but I obviously want to do it asap.
No way am I going near a main dealer.

Hi ya

Check with mini for the pipes you need you my find there not a bad price plus they will be the correct shape and size.

Have you looked on real oem use you last seven digits of your vin and look for the parts you are after the prices are in dollars but it will give you a rough idea

Which one or ones do you need to change ?

If you are changing the pipes you may need a computer with bmw dis software on it to put the abs module in to service mode, Or you will not get the air out of it when you try to bleed it

Hope this helps

Wow! Talk about making life deliberately difficult.

As the car is 11 years old next week, and there were MOT comments on 3 pipes, I will do the lot in one go for comfort and safety.

Thanks.

Hi ya

Tell me about it when I got my MCS years back, first thing I bought was the bmw diagnostic software and lead from ebay bmw cables I think it was, so I could do all this my self it cost me 30 it's a bit of a pain to load the software but not to hard. money well spent

You my be lucky depending which pipes you are changing just try not to let it drain down try to keep as much air out as possible.

I won't be doing it myself - way too dodgy for my lack of ability and my bad back.
